Kolkata: HCL Infosystem Ltd will develop a system integration centre here in the next 8-12 months.

"We will develop a system integration centre here. We would be able to deliver projects in West Bengal and also outside the state. The project would tentatively be completed within next 8-12 months," HCL Infosystem Ltd chairman and CEO Ajai Chowdhry told reporters on the sidelines of an IT seminar, ICT East 2007, organised by Confederation of Indian Industry here Tuesday.

He said 1.5 acres of land has been bought at 10.2 million per acre on the southern fringe of the city.

"We will develop a training centre, regional data centre and a repairing centre. It would be the second system integration centre of HCL in India," said Chowdhry.

HCL Infosystem already has one system integration centre in Chandigarh. The company is planning to develop five such centres across the country in the near future, he added.

HCL's computer hardware manufacturing plants include four facilities - two centres at Puducherry and one each at Chennai and Uttarakhand.

"We have already identified nine areas like telecom, airport, power, e-governance, banking and finance, etc. on which this system integration centre can work on," he said.

"We are also going to launch five more integrated systems such as media and entertainment, retail, railway, airports and health from this year," he added.

"We will hire about 1,000 people locally at the Kolkata centre," said Chowdhry.
